Energy Metrics for Cable Operator Access Networks

This document enables cable operators to measure how effective changes in the access network (AN) service impacts energy consumption from both a high-level and functional operations perspective. It enables operators to gauge individual progress, as well as measure progress against the cable industry, without ambiguity. This document also serves as a reliable compass by focusing operator resources on areas of the network with the greatest opportunity and prioritizing energy efficiency spend during budget cycles.
